What Our Customers Say...

Description

Early Edition, Publishers' Original Binding

The second edition, printed the same year as the first. 

In the original art-nouveau linear design binding. With eight pages of publisher's adverts to the rear. 

'Murder on the Links' is Agatha Christie's third novel, and the second to feature Hercule Poirot. 

This novel features both Hercule Poirot and Captain Arthur Hastings. It is set in northern France and is told with Hastings as the narrator. Poirot is pitted against an unfriendly French police officer to solve a murder. This novel resulted in contemporary media favourably comparing Christie's Belgian detective to Sherlock Holmes due to his methods of detection.

Condition

In the original full cloth binding. Externally, generally smart. Light rubbing to the head and tail of spine as well as to the joints. Spine is slightly cocked. Former owner's inscription to the front pastedown, M Deuchar May 1924. Internally, binding is strained in several places. Pages are bright, with scattered spotting to the fore-edge. Affecting the occasional pages.
